Neufchatel Cheese Ball

Perfect for entertaining - all the work is done 2 days in advance, you just need to serve it on the day. If neufchatel cheese is unavailable any cream cheese can be used as a substitute. A mild pepperoni or salami can be substituted for the cabana.


  1. Leave cheese to soften to room temperature.
  2. Finely chop cabana and spring onion and combine with softened cheese.
  3. Roll into ball and roll in sweet paprika.
  4. Refridgerate for 2 days.

Made this for Christmas Day. My son's fiance calls it the "Evil Cheeseball" as we all kept nibbling at it. I had to remove it from the table so appetites would not be spoilt for xmas lunch. This is so easy to make and gets a great response.

Fabulous recipe and very easy to make with a huge bonus of being able to put this together 2 days in advance. I was lucky enough to first try this at the Aussie Christmas Party in Melbourne and then made my own for Christmas day. Thanks Spinner!
